#700: A Star Is Born / Top 5 Movie Duets
Bradley Cooper's A STAR IS BORN is the fourth adaptation of the tale - fifth if you count 1932's George Cukor-directed "What Price Hollywood." The story of a hard-drinking industry veteran discovering and grooming a young starlet (or singer) also has a strong awards pedigree, with those previous incarnations accumulating a total of 19 Oscar nominations. For his directing debut, Cooper isn't dabbling, and it seems like the gamble has paid off. Early reviews have been strong, including for Cooper's star: acting novice (if legit superstar) Lady Gaga. On this week's show, Adam and Josh join the new Star's fan club, but do they love it enough to satisfy the movie's most ardent fans? Also: the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips comes aboard for a preview of the Chicago Int'l Film Festival (Oct 10-21) and the Filmspotting Top 5: Movie Duets.
